The CA Foundation Day was celebrated on 1st July throughout the country. This year’s celebrations were historic for us, as we had the Hon’ble President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind launching the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations of ICAI in New Delhi. The joy of witnessing this proud movement was doubled as he stated that the success of ICAI is the success and the pride for the country.
He lauded the efforts of Chartered Accountants for their role during the period of transition to the most landmark and revolutionary legislation i.e. GST. To complement this we pledge our full commitment towards the development of the country as a whole and by pledging support to all policy makers, thus together leading the path of development.
ICAI are partners in Nation Building and as testimony to our commitment a commemorative postal stamp was released by Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Union Minister of State for Communications and for Railways showcasing 70 years of ICAI in service to the nation. As a matter of fact, the Department of Posts issues commemorative stamps only to those entities which have contributed significantly to the Nation.
We organised many different activities across the Region for commemorating our Platinum Jubilee. There were special activities comprising financial literacy and GST camps for girl students across various colleges, tree plantation drives, blood donation camps, medical camps, Swachh Bharat activities, support for students, etc. I thank the leaders in the Branches & Study Circles for their support in these activities.
We are working towards a more focused approach for our Members in Industry and Service. I am proud to say that our Members in Industry with their in-depth vista of knowledge are the epitome of ICAI’s vision. They are doing a great service by spreading the vision of ICAI in the corporate arena, as they constantly strive to contribute to the growth of industry by regularly updating on various relevant legislations as well as reviewing and executing management decisions to take the industry as a whole forward.
Our Foundation Day flag hoisting took place at the worthy hands of Shri Mangal Prabhat Lodha (MLA), Mumbai, and Shri Rajendra, Hon’ble Member, ITAT, both of whom unequivocally acknowledged the fact that the importance of Chartered Accountants is very significant in the growth of our economy.
The 13th WIRC ‘Mile Sur Mera Tumhara’ Foundation Day Celebrations took place amidst lots of warmth and togetherness. Juniors and Seniors showed great teamwork in helping each other perform well together.
We, the members of the Council, were overcome by a sense of pride and gratitude when we felicitated the respected senior members who are above seventy years of age. We salute them for their continuous dedication towards the profession and more particularly for mentoring the younger generation. They are and shall always remain a beacon for the generations to come.
The recent changes in various legislations continue to endorse the wide range of professional opportunities for us. We continue in our quest to bring the best learning platform for our members and students in all the areas where newer dimensions are introduced.
The 33rd Regional Conference is scheduled on the 24th and 25th August, 2018. The details are in this edition and we request members to kindly attend and gain from the broad spectrum of topics covered.
The results of CA Exams were declared recently. On behalf of the WIRC, I congratulate the students who cleared their Final CA Exams and are now proud members of ICAI. We wish them luck and success in all their future endeavours. We also welcome the students who have cleared the entrance exams.
I also wish every member and student a very happy Independence Day and a judicious mix of good health and responsibilities in this busy season ahead.
With Best Wishes,
CA. Sandeep K.C. Jain
